Six pieces every skier needs

1. A ski jacket for every shape

From sleek silhouettes to voluminous soft shapes, ski jackets come in a variety of styles. A ski jacket should be a considered make sure it fits with all of your winter wardrobe. As perfect for après ski as it is for the slopes. 

Choose a colour you know works with your skin tone. Don't feel you should stick to pure black but if you are wedded to it, then even a hint of colour can be truly eyecatching. 

Consider the length you prefer. Slim hipped skiers can try a cropped look. Those with hourglass shapes should research belted ski jackets to make the most of their form and figure. Apple shaped could consider a blouson style and pear shaped can try a belted or curved hem ski jacket.

4. Add super soft base layers  

Base layers can help make or break your holiday. No one wants to be cold on the ski slopes. Fine base layers teamed with a warm second layer can be wonderful for very cold days. On normal skiing days or warmer days, just a simple base layer or thermal will be perfect.
